  • UT Files Preservation

    Hey guys I'm just now coming back to UT from being stuck messing around with Skyrim for several years and almost every download site I've ever known is now gone it seems.

    My purpose of this topic is not to ask where to find anything but to help restore what I can with what I've got saved on my external drives and such as well as maybe provide a new download source.

    Everything as far as I'm aware is in their original zips, exes, umods with readme if they had one. The only exception to this I know for fact is ADSU (Alternate Duplicate Switch Utility that was on SkinCity) which for the life of me I can't find a zip version on my backups or the net.

    If there is anything there the original authors want removed I will do so, all you need do is ask.

    Uploads Complete and here is what should be available
    Please be aware my count isn't perfectly accurate and there are duplicates and older versions that still need to be weeded out, anyone pointing which ones out would be appreciated. The folders are supposedly open to anyone who wants to add more, just drag and drop something in.

    If a file is corrupt after multiple tries let me know I probably need to reupload it.

    Not much there yet, but I grabbed a couple of UT99 maps using AirExplorer (very handy way to manage remote drives)

    This file is a standalone mod, not a skin pack
    /Unreal Files/UT1/CHARACTERS/Pack/1194-NeoCairoBeta52_Setup.exe

    This file is a Mutator by Wormbo
    /Unreal Files/UT1/

      Yeah I remember NeoCairo, isn't it a total conversion actually? So I should put it in a TC folder or Mod folder then? (My UT99 doesn't work anymore last I tried although I did manage to get U1 working finally so maybe I'll get it eventually)
      Thanks for identifying those for me I'll see if I can't move them around after the current UT3 group finishes uploading.

        Awesome project!

          Yes a stand-alone folder would be good, so they don't get confused with regular "Game Types".
          Suggestion: You could mimic the folder structure of

          I posted a guide here with everything needed to update and customise the old UT for a modern experience

            Thanks for the guide link there, no luck getting the S3TC files though, was trying for the UTRP but doesn't seem to be a link as the link button isn't clickable.

            Ok how are things looking so far, let me know if you want anything moved around, sadly I'm out of UT99 files, used to have more but re-writable discs just were not very reliable with their constant Cyclic Redundancy Check errors, lost most of UT99 and pretty much all of UT2003 that didn't work in UT2004 to that problem ,still plenty of 2004 to add to the list though.

            Btw there is one particular UT99 mod I've lost I would like to have again but haven't had any luck finding it, I think it was called SinUT or something it was similar to U4E content wise.

            Btw also feel free to re-post the link to my collection anywhere you feel the need to do so if it's allowed that is, I might also be able to open it up for others to add things but I'm worried someone will slip a virus in or something.

            Out of curiosity has this collection helped restore anything that went missing?

              I have about 420GB of UT99 files myself, medor has about the same, so I think all that's survived the years has been saved. I don't see anything new in your collection anyhow. I think more important are the UT2003 files; I have about 60GB, far from a complete collection, but I think a lot of the stuff that came out in the short time before UT2004 have been lost.

              A good idea though.

                I read somewhere around here none of your collection is available anywhere on the net, if that is still true I've got more than plenty of space on my G-Drive if you want to add anything to it (here's hoping G-Drive will be less likely to just disappear like a website might).

                  True, it's not public....yet. I have 1TB with Dropbox and do plan to make something happen over my vacation, but thanks for the offer. The trouble is that with almost 3TB of Unreal series files, I simply don't know where to start! I just have to build my own server I suppose...

                    If I'm reading this right you're saying you have 3TB worth backed up but only 1TB available online to upload to? I've still got around 800GB I'm willing to share if you need it and possibly might be able to get another TB worth still.

                    Also I decided to go ahead and open up the folders so anyone can add to them in theory.

                    I'm just about to the end of what I've got finally, should be done completely in a few more hours I think, after which I'll edit my 1st post with a count of what should be visible.

                    Been meaning to ask as well is the old fourm dead with no sense posting in because last I saw the most recent post in it was 2016 and here we're almost through 2017.

                    -if double post sorry- I had an error message that it couldn't be posted

                    EDIT- Hey uh if it isn't too much trouble could someone please download, extract, and zip rar or 7z any ace type archive and reupload it, I don't have a program that recognizes those anymore it seems.

                      Yes, I have much more than I can host. I appreciate the offer, but it still leaves me with the task of choosing what to make available (and again, incomplete), thus I said that I simply need a way to get it all out there.

                      EDIT: I uploaded a few items (UT + UT3) to your collection (pecjournal is the account my students use). I can and will add to that in the future, just to make your drive more viable.

                      As for your request to download and re-compress, I'm not sure what you're referring to mate.

                        Ok cool to see it works, I see files added by a G.T., am I allowed to categorize any files you guys add or leave them be because it looks like a skin pack is in the maps section of UT99 and I have no problem playing librarian.

                        Also I don't see any new UT3 files, you probably already know this but just in case if you don't you can't upload to multiple folders at the same time everything will just get thrown straight to root G-Drive (happened to me while uploading several times).

                        I was asking if anyone could download the .ACE file types from my drive, extract and then reupload in normal ZIP, RAR or 7Zip format because I don't have a way of opening .ACE anymore. Most of if not all are found in UT2004 folders in at least monsters, characters and I think maps as well, if need be I can make a list of them

                        btw getting that extra TB is a no go at this time so that idea is out

                          No mate....move them where you like. Make some new folders even...I couldn't see where to put some of the files. I added a lot of UT3 content in the "Map Packs" section. Google Drive lists the changes to the folder contents on the right side, so you can see what I added there. "G.T."....that's me.

                            It doesn't list them for me, even the last modified date isn't changed but the files are there. All I noticed in the UT3 section was Moloch Mappacks and Giant Map Packs 1-3 (which am I right that those are actually for UT99 because I moved the Giant Map Packs to there), if there is anything else I'm not seeing it.

                              Yes, I put them in the wrong place. Those files are all contained within my Dropbox already and thus previously uploaded, but the links have been buried.
